township under its limited home rule powers be published in accordance
with the provisions of R.C. 731.21, R.C. 731.22, R.C. 731.24, R.C.
731.25, and R.C. 731.26, which establish publication procedures to be

SYLLABUS: 2005-018
1. At the time a Brown County Municipal Court assistant clerk is terminated
from that position, she “separates” from service for purposes of R.C.

County Municipal Court as the court’s assignment commissioner. R.C.
325.19(C) requires the Brown County Clerk of Courts to pay the
employee, at the time of separation, “for the prorated portion of any
earned but unused vacation leave for the current year to the employee’s
credit at time of separation, and … for any unused vacation leave accrued
to the employee’s credit, with the permission of the appointing authority,
for the three years immediately preceding the last anniversary date of
employment.” At the time this employee terminates her employment as
the Brown County Municipal Court’s assignment commissioner in order
to return to her former position as assistant clerk of that court, the
employee “separates” from service for purposes of R.C. 325.19, and at
such time must be paid, in accordance with the terms of R.C. 325.19(C),
for unused vacation leave earned in her position as assignment

A board of county commissioners is not authorized by R.C. 307.93(D) or R.C.
2929.37(A) to adopt a policy that requires a convicted offender serving in a local
detention facility to repay the county for the costs it incurred as a result of his
confinement in the facility prior to the commencement of his sentence.
